Viv,

If you have not been able to locate an Agent to help you in the Manhattan area or Brooklyn, I would be happy to refer you to a friend of mine. She works in NYC and could help answer your questions. I know looking for information sometimes can be difficult even with all our technology. The human connection is very important and working with an Agent who you trust in imperative.

Please let me know if I can help. Just review my profile on Trulia and send me a message and I can send along the information or email me directly at THOYT@prutropical.com if that is easier.

Required? By whom?

There is no law requiring a landlord to clean the carpet. The only possible exception I can think of might be a Section 8 authority. But no.

Now, is it WISE to have the carpets cleaned? Probably. It will make the unit more appealing thus, more marketable. ... more

You should check with your landlord/management company - they may allow you to do so and ask to put their original one back before you move out.

Hi Cornic,

What you do with the property depends on your financial status and goals. If you are in need of the funds, you should seriously consider listing your apartment for sale. However, if the rental income is higher than your monthly expenses (positive cash flow or passive income) and you are not in need of the funds, it is a way to grow your wealth through equity buidup as well as income.

Hope the answer was not too confusing. If you wish to discuss in person - feel free to give me a call.

My best

They are based out of NJ and provide financial assistance and guidance to first time home buyers. I can only speak from my experience but I find their process painfully slow, which can kill a transaction easily. Be prepared to spend many hours with them on the phone or make personal trips to NJ to get a response to your file. I wonder if it's worth the savings. What was your husband's client experience?

It is possible that they might deny you because of adverse information no matter how long. I believe that it is something for each indivicual coop board. You should make sure your agent is familiar with the boards in which you are applying. Generally if your bankruptcy is so far in the past it will not come up on a regular credit check. With a good history over the last 7 years I don't believe you will have a problem in any but the most stringent boards. ... more

Armen Meschian answered:
Hi Harris,

The law does not differenciate factual representations based on transaction type when it comes to residential real estate. (Note, RESIDENTIAL, as commercial is handled very differently). Fiduciary responsibility aside, as there may not be one in some transactions, licensees are required to disclose any material facts which may present a problem, which of course they have to have direct knowldedge of. New measures have also been put into place in NYC such as the bed bug disclosure.

Warm regars,
Armen

I would start with whoever is holding the money. By now this should have been resolved. Before you call them however, review your paperwork, it may have had a time limit to resolve this or the funds may have already been released somewhere. ... more

Nick Rafello answered:
Maintenance is tax deductible for the share owner. However, it goes off of what your current tax bracket is. And yes, if you pay cash on an apartment the maintenance can still be deducted. When you see a coop that is listed for sale and they say that the maintenance is 40% tax deductible, that 40% is all the maintenance combined in the building not the maintenance to the unit itself. ... more

I would say it's a very good thing when there is a manager on site in a rental building. That means they have an eye on what's going on in the building. Therefore if something needs repair or attention, they see it firsthand and take care of it. ... more

Pick a sunny, warm Saturday afternoon to walk around the complex. Ask people coming out of the building or hanging around a local park. Talk to local shop owners near the complex and see what they have to say. It requires a little leg work, but hey, you might make a friend or two!

Good luck!

Hi Amy!

Good question. In fact, there are many different ways that maintenance requests can be handled. Some newer buildings have an online system for maintenance requests that you can access day or night. In some buildings that have a doorman, usually calling or asking the doorman is enough to have the maintenance request handled. Lastly, in smaller buildings that don't have a doorman, you will typically get the phone number of the superintendent when you move in. This is the person to whom you will direct your maintenance requests.

That being said, even when you have successfully submitted a request for maintenance, the speed and efficiency with which the request is handled depends completely on the building/management company. A seasoned agent should be able to tell you what sort of reputation a building/management company has for processing maintenance requests as you hunt for a new home.

I hope this answer your question!

Alex
